“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
1 Cor 3:11
After Lori and I had been in our current house a year or so we began to do some landscaping. One of the projects that I undertook was to separate our lawn from our flower beds using cottage bricks. It seemed overkill at the time, but I went through the whole process of digging up the ground, putting in a weedbarrier, and laboriously leveling first pea gravel and then brick after brick. Now, 15 years later, my walls of brick are still straight and level (just covered with moss).
What am I doing though to lay for myself a spiritual foundation that will last for the remainder of my journey? Wait, that is selfish. What am I doing to establish a strong foundation in the lives of others? One that will last well beyond my days.
